House, 5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 16 Sleeps

Beautiful, charming, relaxing, fun, heaven on earth, blessed.

We are glad that you have found our vacation home. For us it has been our home for the past two and a half years, but, we are excited about others finding out what we know. We are now making our house available for rent. Now everyone can find out how Dauphin Island is one of the Gulf Coasts best kept secrets. We feel like we have the best of both worlds here. We have one of the most spectacular views from our back deck looking over one of Dauphin Islands inlets, along with a view toward Mobile Bay and entry to the Gulf of Mexico. We are only a couple of minutes from the beach, so we have you covered which ever you prefer during your stay.

Our house has a great layout inside, if you are coming with your family or sharing your vacation with another family. We have two bedrooms on each side of a large family room, with jack and jill baths in between. Plenty of privacy if you are sharing a vacation with others. The downstairs fifth bedroom is perfect for the kids. The kitchen is open to the family room giving it a warm, open feeling.

Our back deck will be the winning part of this story. You will not want to come back inside once you relax on the deck and get lost in the view. You will see beautiful sunsets, boats passing by, and the peacefulness of the water on a calm or breezy day while you relax on the deck. You can keep an eye on the children swimming below in the pool. I told you, you will not want to go back in.

No matter how long you stay, you will not lack for things to do. From our home you will be able to go swimming, fishing, kayaking and boating. Dauphin Island is a great place to go for a long walk, ride bikes, bird watch or just lay on the beach. You can even catch the ferry that runs between Dauphin Island and Gulf Shores.

Dauphin Island will give you what most people want from a vacation. A chance to escape the busy and noisy life. When you go home, you will know that you have been rested and recharged. We hope you will love our home as much as we do. Thank you, Steve and Cathy Vickers.

Our stay in Island Pleasure was absolutely sterling .... the younger members of our family group (who converged on Dauphin Island from various locations thru the US) enjoyed the kayaks and bikes ... the youngest who is used to harsh winter temps enjoyed being on the deck so very close to the water .... and the eldest, who was in charge of most meal times, enjoyed the kitchen and sitting on the decks. There was sufficient room to allow for both togetherness and being apart from the family 'fray' - we loved the fireplace on the one day it was nippy - just a really good experience from every direction.

Owner's Response: Hi Page, it was great having you family bring in the New Year at our little piece of heaven on Dauphin Island. The amenities we offer make it a great vacation, no matter what age or what time of year you decide to visit. From the fishing, the crabbing the biking, the kayaking or just hanging out on one of the many decks or watching the birds while sitting in the hot tub there's no better place to relax. We hope you guys have a chance to come again in the future.
Thanks again!

Excellent House Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5
Our famiy vacation included ages 20 to 84, everyone had a fantastic time with beautiful views from the multiple balconies and charming & comfortable furnishings in the house.
You will sleep like a baby on this vacation.
Fishing off the pier and swiming in the pool were daily activities, with biking, kayaking and golf cart rides when the fish weren't biting.
This is a great house for a family vacation and an excellent location on the island. You will be happy you came and enjoyed Island Pleasure.
I can't thank the Vickers enough for sharing their beautiful home with us.. I wouldn't stay anywhere else on Dauphin Island. Thanks

This is the perfect example of when you DON'T want to give a great review because you don't want other people to find your PERFECT vacation get away!! From the initial email contact, to our arrival, to contacting the owners for a question during our stay, to our departure, this was the best and most relaxing vacation I've ever had! Thank you, to the Vickers for sharing their beautiful home with us! If I made a list of everything great about renting this home, the review would be too long, but the tops on the list are...1. the back porch, 2. peaceful/sunsets, 3. kayaks/bikes, 4. the dock, 5. perfect bedroom/layout. And the list could go on.

Owner's Response: Thank you Maurica and family, you guys are the kind of folks that make us glad we decided to make our house available. We appreciate the care and the comments that help us make changes for our future guest. The porch is our favorite gathering place as well. There are so many different areas to relax from the swing, the hammock, to the pool or hanging out by the grill with the smell of dinner it's difficult to pick the best area. Hope you have a chance to visit us again!

All the extras provided here were perfect to keep everyone busy: golf cart, bikes, kayaks and fishing poles!!! You'll find everything you need in the kitchen too! Thanks for a great time!!
